Sitting in the judge’s chair during The X Factor: Next Generation auditions in Sydney brought back a flood of memories for Adam Lambert.
The 34-year-old singer recalls the exact moments of his American Idol audition in 2009, where he performed Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody to then judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson.
“I kept remembering what it felt like to be in their shoes, to walk into a room and be nervous, to be hopeful and have all this pressure on yourself to do well,” Lambert says by phone from London, where he is rehearsing for the Queen + Adam Lambert tour.
“I was 27 when I did my audition, so I auditioned a lot later than a lot of the other contestants (on Idol). I kind of relate to that idea that they’ve been watching the show for many years before they were finally ready.”
Despite placing runner-up on Idol’s eighth season, Lambert has gone on to pave a hugely successful music career.
With three albums under his belt, the openly gay musician has sold more than five million singles worldwide.
To top it off, Lambert started touring with Queen in 2012, performing the band’s biggest hits in place of the late Freddie Mercury for adoring fans in Europe, the UK, US, Australia and now Asia.
